After creating the Azure Function App, I noted that an Azure Storage Account got created as shown below in the Resource Group contents.


Let’s discuss about why and how this Storage Account is being used by the Azure Functions.

Click on the Storage Account name to navigate to the Storage Account as shown in the below screen capture.


To view the files that the Azure Function stores, click on the Files service as shown in the above screen capture.


Click on the File Share as shown in the above screen capture to view the folder.


You can view the following folders.
